What is the Feedback tool?

Instructors can use the Feedback tool to upload and distribute a comma-delimited (CSV) spreadsheet to present individual feedback and/or grades to students.

Instructors can upload as many feedback files as they want. Students only see their own individual feedback and/or grades.

The Feedback tool provides a convenient mechanism to post comments and grades for those instructors that regularly use Excel spreadsheet files to calculate grades. You might also use it to post class attendance records from a spreadsheet file.

Feedback CSV files must follow a particular format:

  • The first column of the spreadsheet must contain the student usernames.
  • The first row must contain headings.

To access this tool, select Feedback from the Tool Menu in your site.

If the Feedback tool is not displayed in your tools menu, you may have to add the tool using Site Editor / Edit Tools.
